Girl Scouts of Western Washington extends a challenge to you to celebrate the 100th Anniversary of the founding of the Girl Scout movement.
Each month, from October 2011 to September 2012, there will be a new opportunity to learn about our impact on the world around us, be inspired to adopt new practices that protect the earth and TAKE ACTION to soften our impact on the living world in which we live.
Girls may participate in the challenges as an individual, with your family, with your Girl Scout troop, or at Service Unit and Council events. You might do some challenges with your family, and others with your troop – do what works for you! You can accept every month’s challenge, or as many as you can.
